Adelaide Hockey Club Incorporated

ABN 92 236 231 554


 

 

The Adelaide Hockey Club is one of the largest and most successful hockey clubs in South Australia with over 400 members playing both the Junior and Senior competition. The Club also runs the largest Minkey (junior) programme in SA with over 250 primary school children from a large number of schools competing on a regular basis throughout the season.

The Club is proud to have been recognised in 2018 as Hockey SA Club of the Year, and also Adelaide City Council’s inaugural Active Ambassador Sports Award, Junior Club of the Year.  

The Adelaide Hockey Club has enjoyed great success over the years with many premierships in Junior and Senior grades, have consistently provided players for State representative teams and on several occasions had players represent Australia.

The Club's strength is in its membership base and in the depth of coaching experience across all grades. Our junior coaching program is overseen by our senior men's and women's coaching committee. 

The Club, as part of a Consortium, shares its facilities with Pulteney Grammar School and Tennis Seniors SA and is centrally located in the south parklands in Adelaide. We have a full-sized turf pitch and a smaller turf pitch used for junior training and U9 matches.

The clubhouse has a licenced bar, kitchen and change-rooms. The large internal and external areas make for a rich and active social life during the hockey season.

The Adelaide Hockey Club makes welcome all members of the hockey community: players, umpires, officials, support staff and spectators.

If you are thinking of joining a hockey club in the Adelaide region, we invite you to come and see what Adelaide Hockey Club has to offer.  Players of all ages and abilities are welcome at the home of the Peas!

Hockey at Adelaide Hockey Club:

Minkey Hockey

The Club has been running a successful Minkey and Half–Field Hockey program at Park 17 and 19 since 1984. In the first year there were only 4 teams from Clapham, Highgate, Burnside and Linden Park Primary Schools. It eventually grew to more than 300 children from over 18 schools in the 2015/16 season, and became a model for a number of other hockey clubs.

Minkey caters for primary school children generally from Yrs 2-4 and is played on a field approximately one quarter of a normal pitch.  The rules for Minkey are very few to make it easier for the beginner, ie there are no penalty or long corners and hitting is not allowed.  Safety and fun are the main priorities. Half-field caters for Years 5&6 and is played on half a hockey pitch (funny that!).  Corners and hitting are now allowed. 

The Minkey season runs for 19 weeks over Terms 2&3 - from May until September - including a two-week break for mid-term holidays in July.  Games are played on Friday afternoons, rain or shine, at fields located on the corner of Greenhill and Beaumont Roads in the South Parklands. This location has enough space for 8 Minkey fields and 10 half-field pitches.The programme is school based and the teams are generally a mixture of girls and boys.  The schools that participate are generally from around the local area.

Umpires for the matches are generally AHC junior players and it is a great way to introduce our club players to becoming and umpire.
